EACE doves continue to flutter

The peace commission was expected
to leave for Mexico City Thursday
morning on a special train. But one
ot the minor members of the commie- I
sion went to Ahumada and failed to re
turn. De la Fuente's trip to Palomas
also delayed the departure of the 'com
mission, as he is supposed to have au
thority from Salazar to treat for peace.
Garcia Granados says that the stage for
the peace conferences is .to be trans
ferred from HI Paso to Mexico City and
that as soon as De la Fuente returns
from Palomas. late this evening, the
start for Mexico City will probably be J
of Chihuahua, but because the roving
bands of Maderistas south of Chihuahua
had cut the line, it may be necessaryfor
the trip to be made by way of Laredo.
De la Fnentes's Surprise Trip.
The return of David de la Fuente af
ter he had reached Santa Rosalia, has
caused much speculation among the
amateur strategists here, ue la -Fuente,
being commissioner of communications,
has the power to order special trains at
will, the Mexican Central officials say.
He left here on a. special train last
week, accompanied by Manuel Lilian,
JElafael Horcasitas. Pedro Racio and a
bodyguard of 15 Sonora. rebels. To his
American, friends. De la Fuente admit-

day evening De la Fuente said that he
expected to leave for Mexico City once
more Thursday morning on the same
special train. Instead he went to Pa
lomas on a Southwestern special train
to confer with Salazar.
Revolutionists Arc Split.
The return of De la Fuente and his
hurried ' trip to Palomas is indication,
it is said, of a split m the rebel ranks
between Orozco and Salasar. Salazar
has refused to confer with Orozco re
garding peace and insists that he. Sal
azar. is the big noise in the north. This
Orozco's men deny and declare that De
la Fuente has no authority to treat for
peace as the representative of the
northern revolution. Garcia Granados
insists that he is here to bring about
peace, if possible, and will treat with
all tactions. He has sent messengers
to Rojas. who cannot be found, asking
him to come to El Paso'. A break is
said to have occurred within Salazar's
camp and Emilio Campa, Roque
Gomez and Rojas have left
Salazar and taken the field
independently. This further complicates
the peace negotiations, as it will be
necessary for the commission to treat
with each individual chief.
CoL Perez. Rojas's secretary, was in
El Paso Thursday trying to locate his
chief, as he is wanted to go to Agua
Prieta at once and organize a force to
t go against the Sonora revolutionists.
De ia fuente stopped at villa Ahu

Wednesday morning. The conference
lasted three hours, the members of his
The Sonera Situation.
There has been no movement of ex
rebel forces in Chihuahua state, nor do
rebel agents here believe that either
Orozco or Salazar are in positions te
assist in subduing 'Sonora. The two
generals clearly have shown that they
, do not agree regarding the demands of
the northern revolutionists to be made
on president Huerta.
It is denied by Orozco representatives
! here that the long time commander in
chief of the northern rebels has made
any monetary demand on the provis
ional government at Mexico City. It is
discredited that Orozco's agent, . Col.
Jose Cordova, has asked for money
considerations, as reported from Mex
ico City. Orozco remains at Ahumada,

Senator Davis introduced a bill for
the sale of public lands. It Is doubt
ful which one will cause the most
comment. Enemies of governor Hunt's

there are enough legislators opposed
